Our goal as Outdoorsmen For Christ is to reach and influence individuals, changing mindsets and empowering people to turn to Christ, therefore enabling them to impact their life in every way.
On Saturday, August 27th, our first of what we hope will be many Hunters Safety classes, was held at Just as I Am Cowboy Church. The class was led by Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) officer Jessica Filla. There were 15 class members, many accompanied by parents.
Paul Conboy and Leon Pease already had their Hunters Safety certification and after passing the class, Sally Pease also has her certification. The next step in the process is for the three of them to be certified to teach the class. A class is being tentatively planned for late October.
The class was from 8am to noon and included training videos covering safe shooting zones, wearing blaze orange, setting up and hunting safely from a tree stand and how to safely cross a fence with a firearm. In addition, guns without firing pins were provided by MDC and each member of the class was required to load and unload each gun, as well as learning the basic operation of the gun.
Breakfast of donuts and coffee, milk and juice was provided, as well as pizza and chips for lunch.
